Top 5: Electric SUVs

Cars
Now think about it. There's a problem in the auto industry. The number one selling type of vehicle in the U.S. is a crossover in SUV. Almost all the electric cars. Are sold in the US are not Crossovers and SUVs. What's going on there. A mismatched is about to get solved in the next couple of years. So let me give you a taste of how it's gonna do down with my top five list of electric. Pure Electric SUVs. One now most pending. Number 5 is the Nissan Terra God that's ugly. It's as if the Armada and a Dove Bar had a love child. Let's leave the styling aside for a minute. They are on right page with audacious engineering around a vision for a hydrogen fuel cell. It's smart, but it's a long Hail Mary. They also imagined the tablet as the dashboard, that's not going to happen. However, Nissan is smart and savvy about crossovers and SUVs, don't forget the number two selling one in the entire US is the Rogue. So they've already set the table for this to be an important effort for them. [SOUND] Number four is Ford's promised electric SUV. And that's about all I know. They've said they'll have it in showrooms by 2020. It will be all electric. We'll assume battery not fuel cell, which really isn't their thing. But I've put it in here as a low-ranked, but a placeholder because Ford obviously is Very credible on SUV's and crossovers. Number 3 is the Jaguar I-Pace. The buzz around this guy, when it debuted at the L.A. show November of 16, was unusually high. The crowd senses the winner here. Jaguar has been on kind of a roll generally the last couple of years. This one's going to be a battery electric promising about 220 miles of range, zero to 60 in about four seconds, and styling that is so good it almost doesn't look like a crossover or SUV but it will qualify as one. They'll have the Sky on the market in 2018. They've already had a demo vehicle prowling the streets of London. For a few miles here and there. Now we're getting up there. My pick for number 2 is Audi's e-tron quattro concept. Concept yes, but so close to production. It's giving us a real taste of what's coming, also in 2018. To do battle with the Jaguar [UNKNOWN] Now big difference here, these guys are promising at least 310 miles of range, nearly 100 more than the Jaguar and a similar 0 to 60 somewhere in the 4 second range. It'll be sharing some underpinning with Porsche's much admired mission E projects. So Porsche DNA never hurts you in the market, especially when your charging big bucks. This guy looks like it could be the biggest headache for number one. [MUSIC]. Before I get you to number one, I've got an interesting spot for the Chevy Bolt EV. You may say, why is that in this list? Chevy will swear up and down, this is a compact cross over. I don't think it's what most people have in mind though, when they go to shop for a SUV or a cross over. So it's in an interesting gray zone. But one thing is absolutely clear about the bolt is one hell of an electric vehicle. As you might number one is the Tesla Model X. If for no other reason none the fact that they're on the market, well everyone else is making 2018's and 2020 promises Plus the model X is got that amazing Tesla driving feel. They really do engineer a great driving vehicle. It has not been without its headaches and I'm not really sure those falcon doors are worth the effort but they do make it stand out. Interestingly it is still handily outsold by it's more conventional you will model S.. Sedan sibling. But this remains the one to beat when any of the others come to market. More top five lists await the car lover. Go to cnetoncars.com, click on top five.
